Decor On A Budget: An Interview With Lindsay Eidahl Of My Creative Days
With nearly 300 projects on her Hometalk page, Lindsay Eidahl of My Creative Days is a force to be reckoned with in the DIY scene. This is especially the case with projects that revolve around decorating on a budget, and upcycled transformations.
Get ready to learn more about Lindsay, and her very creative ways!
When did you start DIYing?
I started DIYing when my husband and I bought our first home. I wanted to decorate it like all the pictures I was collecting from magazines, but we didn’t have the budget to buy it all new. I was discouraged, but inspired to find a way around the tight budget and still decorate our home the way I wanted to. I found that we could get the same look for a lot less with DIYing, repurposing and shopping at yard sales and thrift stores.
What inspired you to start DIYing?
I love a great repurposed project, furniture flip and a DIY project in our home to get a custom look for a lot less.
What are your favorite types of projects?
I am always rearranging things in our home. When I fall in love with a new project, I will get rid of something to make room for it. We always have big yard sales in the spring and fall full of the projects that aren’t “making the cut” in our home at the time.
How did your blog come about? What inspired you to start it?
I started blogging because family and friends would come to our home and tell me I needed to get my ideas “out there”. I never knew what that meant and then started reading blogs. I started My Creative Days to share my creative ways for decorating without breaking the bank.
What is your goal with your projects?
My goal with any project is to get the look I want without spending a ton of money to get it. That can be anything from furniture pieces that can be made over to look like an expensive piece I saw in a magazine or a DIY project to make our home beautiful and comfortable.
If time and cost weren’t an issue, what would be the DIY project of your dreams?
If time and cost were not an issue, I would love to find a house on some land that needed some work to move to. We just bought our first flip house to sell, but we would love to buy one to live in with some land. I would also love to build a she shed in our backyard made out of reclaimed materials.
